[Infostock Daily= reporter Song Jeong-hoon] A new coronavirus infection (Corona 19 or COVID-19) was confirmed at Samsung Electronics' Texas semiconductor plant.
According to industry sources on the 1st (local time), a local employee working at the Austin Semiconductor plant in Texas, USA, was confirmed to have Corona 19.
The employee did not go to work from the 13th of last month after showing suspected corona 19 symptoms, so Samsung Electronics' semiconductor production line is reportedly operating normally.
A Samsung Electronics official said, "We conducted both on-site prevention and hygiene management in accordance with the guidelines of the US health authorities." Product production is also normal. "
A total of 10,000 people, including 3,000 Samsung Electronics employees and employees of partner companies, work at the Austin plant, which is centered on foundry (consignment production of semiconductors).
On the other hand, on the 30th of last month, there was a corona 19 confirmed at Samsung Electronics Giheung plant, which produces semiconductors in Korea. However, the confirmed person was an employee working in the office, so it did not affect the production process.
